Happy Tuesday Everyone!!
Today, I had oral surgery. This surgery was the last thing we needed to happen before beginning treatments. I’m in quite a bit of pain, but I’m happy to have it complete. However, sticking to my whole30 diet while on soft foods and hurting is a challenge! We are on day 9 of Whole30 currently! It is super important to us to be as healthy as we can possibly be right now. I have also re-joined the local yoga studio (shout out: http://www.spiralbranchyoga.com – If you are in the Denham Springs, LA area and you haven’t checked them out, you are missing out!) Both the Whole30 and Yoga have helped me tremendously already! I feel my mind is in a much clearer place, my spirit is uplifted, and I’m sleeping so much better!
I will begin my 10 days of progesterone tomorrow! It feels surreal that we are actually beginning treatments. While I am excited about the process, I’m taking it one day at a time. I don’t want to get my hopes up too much (and add to the devastation if it doesn’t work), but I also don’t want to be a pessimist. One day at a time. One step a time. While this isn’t exactly how I imagined myself having children, I am grateful for options, and I am even more grateful for a supportive husband by my side through it all. I couldn’t ask for a better person on my team!
For all of my friends going through the same things, figuring out their next steps, and waiting for/receiving IVF and IUI results, you are all in my prayers! We are all in this together!
